/ Portland - blacknor north approach
Thanks John, might be best to stay clear. How are blacknor south and battleship in comparison?
Hi. Take care on the path into Battleship as that is starting to crack and slide.
A week ago the routes at both Battleship and Blacknor Far South were very wet.
Thanks for the heads up Helen. FC seems to indicate general dryness all this week in Portland so fingers crossed. Otherwise it's the bloody cuttings AGAIN!
Has anyone been around there in the last day or so? Is there anywhere to avoid in that sort of area at the moment?

We walked into battleship Saturday. The approach was fine and most of the routes were dry...
Was at blacknor far south today. Access was very straight forward, and seemed to be for battleship too. Most of the paths are pretty dry now, just underneath the few areas of seepage are still a bit claggy. Cold though... Icicles on medusa falls!
